javax.rpc.Call (or whatever they call it in the draft once it gets released
;)) will likely be an interface, and as such we can also add whatever we
want to the classes implementing it.  Anyone using our extensions will have
to know they're using an org.apache.axis.client.Call, and not try to go
through javax.rpc.Call, but that's OK.  In fact, we could have just tweaked
ServiceClient to implement Call rather than making a whole new class....
this kind of refactoring might still be a good idea, since it might likely
help existing code....?
